Dearne firms quiz waste unit bosses

OVER 100 businesses took part in an event linked to a proposed new waste facility for Bolton Road at Manvers.

Companies from throughout the area were invited to learn more about opportunities linked to the waste unit. A wide range of suppliers responded.

Shanks Waste Management Ltd was awarded the contract to build the plant and so took the lead at the fact-finding meeting.

There was further advice available from business development officers from Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster Councils.

Nigel Catling, Shanks’ capital delivery director said: “We were delighted that so many local and regional businesses took up our invitation to find out more. It was really useful for us too, to get a broader feel for the huge range of skills within the Dearne Valley and South Yorkshire region.”
